New essay: Seven theses on the Fediverse and the becoming of FLOSS

Recently, @rra and I have been working on an essay highlighting questions about the and how these are getting entangled with practices. From software production to structure and governance within alternative social media, online communities and politics.

The text follows a multi theses model, to map the different things we've been looking at and publish the current state of our research.

It is the closing chapter of a new publication from INC/Transmediale (

The final ROM of What Remains is out! 🎉🎊

What Remains is an 8-bit interactive fiction and adventure video game for the about environmental issues, the manipulation of public opinion, and whistleblowing.

Hi all!

My name is David. I'm from Ann Arbor Michigan. I love to make music and I love writing software to make music and art. I typically feed myself by working as a software developer for others but am currently taking some time to focus on other projects. I'm hugely inspired by people making independent art and tools. I love the culture and aesthetic of Algorave but I've never been to one. I have just migrated here from and I'm excited to be on a more art focused instance.

Last week I made a new major release for Converse.

The biggest change is that the UI is now rendered entirely via declarative web components.

I've written a blog post highlighting some of the more notable changes in this release.


I've released a sound diary over the first 8 months with my 53edo musical instrument, the neod:

Woot! Just see now that new beets 1.5.0 got finally released. Amazing CHANGELOG. Looking forward to dive into it.

@microresearch has you covered.

"UNEINS is a oujia, spirit or talking board designed to enable speedy communication and collective coding contact with spirit or deceased programmers; the ghosts in the machine code!"

@cjd @entreprecariat @rra @jplebreton I found this article very informative concerning the market and who is profiting from it:

for me it is quite obvious why NFT and the art market go so well together: they share an obsession with provenance / authenticity, and the generation of value is based on speculation in both cases too. It's a perfect match in economic character, and the talking about the democratization of the art market is a rationalization, that cannot hold its promises, as the numbers show.

À Genève, dans un magazine lifestyle rempli de bagnoles de luxe et de yachts de misère, le thème de l'effondrement, version cool.

As part of my research into the diverse views on sustainability and ICT, I wrote a paper about edge computing and greenwashing.

'Refusing the Burden of Computation: Edge Computing and Sustainable ICT' is published in the open access, online APRJA journal's issue on research refusal.

My tools, instruments and fonts have now their dedicated page: Fragile Forge! 🔥

The latest issue of the free online open access journal, A Peer-Reviewed Journal About Research Refusal, is now available at - with some great articles.

Disk magazine "FutureDisk" to return to the MSX scene (1500+ chars) 

FutureDisk to return to the MSX scene

In the land of #diskMagazines for the #MSX, #FutureDisk was one of the more well-known and longer lived ones, with almost 50 editions of its disk magazine. Now, more than 20 years later, a bunch of the former crew along with some fresh blood, are planning to return in 2022 with a new issue of FutureDisk! Its first new release is expected to be released at MSX Fair Nijmegen 2022 before a world-wide release online.

What is a disk magazine?

A #diskMagazine, for those unaware, was/is something akin to a #zine; a collection of creative content, presented on disk media.
For the MSX scene this often included reviews of software such as games, other disk magazines and (digital) music collections, as well as guides, game hints, music covers in #chiptune form, scene news, demos, #pixelArt, etc. All presented in a digital interface with nice graphics, animations, music and scrollers. ;)
See for instance this overview of FutureDisk 01 for an example of what you could expect on one.

Who will be involved?

MSX sceners such as #KoenDols, #Jorito (who you might also know from his involvement in OCRemix projects), #ParallaxMSX Pat, #Hegega, and #Meits.

Where to follow updates?

The comments section of the FD2022 announcement on and are probably a good place to start.

Permacomputing Update 2021 

When I wrote my Permacomputing essay in 2020, I was unaware of anyone else having similar ideas. So I decided to write a "sequel" that summarizes what I have found out since. (It's about 35K / 4900 words long)…Permacomputing Update 2021 | viznut

"8 bonnes raisons
de soutenir
la régularisation
1. Régulariser, c’est lutter contre le travail au noir et la fraude sociale.
2. Régulariser les travailleurs et travailleuses répondrait au problème de pénurie de main-d’œuvre.
3. Cela rapporterait par ailleurs jusqu’à 65 millions d’euros nets par mois dans les caisses de la sécurité sociale.
4. Les expulsions et la détention
en centre fermé coûtent très cher à l’État.
5. Régulariser est la condition sine qua non au respect des droits fondamentaux de toutes les personnes vivant en Belgique.
6. Régulariser, c’est lutter contre l’exclusion sociale, le racisme et la montée de l’extrême droite.
7. La Belgique a déjà mené des campagnes de régularisation sans que cela n’engendre d’«appel d’air». Cette crainte est donc injustifiée.
8. Régulariser, c’est rendre leur dignité aux femmes, hommes et enfants qui ont déjà tout perdu."
